Mitt Romney Endorses Meat Loaf

RomneyBoth presidential candidates have received celebrity endorsements during their campaigns and now Republican candidate Mitt Romney has made an endorsement of his own; for the dinnertime delight, Meat Loaf.

Romney made the endorsement at a rally in Ohio. When asked by a reporter what his favorite meal was, he said, “I like meat loaf. Not only is it delicious but the cattle industry employs tens of thousands of Americans. I love America so obviously I also love meat loaf.”

After Romney’s endorsement, Democratic contender President Barack Obama was asked what food he endorses. He told reporters, “I agree with my wife Michelle that nutrition is vitally important for kids growing up today. So any fruit or vegetable gets my nod of approval.”

Obama’s endorsement received lots of support from parents and teachers and Mitt Romney’s meaty dish was criticized for increasing obesity in America. When reporters asked Romney if he still endorses meat loaf, he said, “I’ve never endorsed meat loaf. It’s not only full of fat but it also has a rather bland taste. If I had to endorse a food, it would definitely be either carrots or broccoli. Not meat loaf. I’ve always hated meat loaf.” Romney gained a slight lead in the polls after his heartfelt endorsement of the healthy snack.

Mitt Romney to Dress as Barack Obama for Halloween

During an interview on Fox News, presidential Republican candidate Mitt Romney told Gretchen Carlson that for Halloween, he was planning to dress as rival candidate, President Barack Obama. He told Carlson that he was dressing as the President because he wanted to dress as something really scary.

Upon hearing the news, Obama’s running-mate Joe Biden was a bit disappointed. “I’m also planning to go as Barack. I guess we’ll just see who can pull off black-face better!” He added, “Don’t tell Barack… I want my costume to be a surprise. He’s going to get a huge kick out of it!”

Biden may be keeping his costume plans a surprise for the President but Romney’s announcement was very public. The President laughed when he heard the news and told MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough, “If Romney wants to dress as the winner of the 2012 presidential race, that’s surely his prerogative.”

Scarborough asked the President who he was planning to dress as for Halloween. Smiling, he said, “I will be tying our dog Bo to the top of my campaign bus on Halloween night. Why don’t you take a wild guess as to who I’m dressing up as?”

Big Bird Nesting with Oscar the Grouch After Nest Foreclosed

Big BirdAt the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney told the moderator that even though he loved Big Bird, he’d cut federal funding for PBS. That was a low blow to Big Bird, who has been rooming with Oscar the Grouch after his nest was seized by the banks last year.

Big Bird told BS Gossip that while he used to be part of America’s one percent, he lost most of his riches from bad investments and had his assets foreclosed after he couldn’t repay a loan on his luxury nest. “When I started out on Sesame Street, I lived in the nest you see me in on the show. But I upgraded to a luxury nest with eight eggrooms and six birdbaths and lived the good life until recently.”

After hearing Romney talk about cutting funding to PBS, Big Bird told us he’s scared of being laid off and not being able to pay for the measly accommodations he currently has. Big Bird said, “I’m rooming with Oscar the Grouch in his trash can. It’s filthy but at least I have rotten fruit and stinky diapers to lay my head on when I sleep. But I pay Oscar $400 a month to crash with him and if I lose my job, I honestly don’t know where I will come up with that rent.”

Up until Romney made his anti-PBS comments, Big Bird was an adamant Republican. He told us that with billions of birds aborted every year for the egg industry, he was hoping Romney would win so abortion would be finally Read the rest of this entry »

Romney: A Vote for Obama is a Vote Against Breaking Bad

Romney and ObamaAs Mitt Romney slides in the polls, he has changed the political narrative from the economy to popular TV shows. This morning, the Republican leader told customers at an Arizona IHOP that if Barack Obama is reelected, TV shows like Breaking Bad might never make it to the air.

The popular AMC TV show “Breaking Bad” follows physics teacher Walter White, who is diagnosed with cancer. When his healthcare bill isn’t covered, he turns to a life of selling meth. Romney told the crowd that had Obama been President at the time “Breaking Bad” was created, Walter’s hospital bills would have been covered by Obamacare. “There would be no need for Walter to turn to crime since his bills would be covered and the show we all love would never have existed!” Romney went on to suggest some potentially fantastic TV shows may never be created due to Obama’s failed policies.

Obama didn’t take this suggestion lying down. The President responded by saying, “Romney is obviously not a real fan of the show. Otherwise, he would know that Walter White didn’t just turn to a life of crime to pay his hospital bills but also to raise money for his family in case he succumbed to the cancer. So saying my health care plan would have killed ‘Breaking Bad’ is ridiculous. Nice try Mitt, but the American people are smarter than you think. I guarantee that if I’m reelected, there will no shortage of terrific TV shows created.”

After hearing the President’s response, Romney, took the fight a step further. “It’s funny hearing the President say his policy wouldn’t affect great TV shows from being created. This is a President that supports abortion. If he was president in the late 60s, the mother of the ‘Breaking Bad’ creator, Vince Gilligan, could Read the rest of this entry »

Clint Eastwood’s Imaginary Friend Returns at Republican Convention

Clint ChairAfter being abandoned by his imaginary friend when he was only 7-years-old, the iconic filmmaker was thrown off when his invisible buddy returned during his speech at the Republican Convention.

Eastwood had only intended to pump up the crowd to support presidential candidate Mitt Romney. However, when his imaginary friend reappeared moments before his speech, he quickly had a volunteer place a chair next to the podium and improvised.

Clint’s wife, Dina Eastwood, told BS Gossip that she understands why the public thought her husband’s speech was erratic. “It was. What people didn’t know at the time was that Clint’s long-lost imaginary friend Handsome Pete had just returned and that my husband was doing double duty, juggling his speech with an unexpected reunion. When it seemed Clint was implying President Obama had told him to shut up, it was really Handsome Pete, who was actually sitting in the chair, who had told Clint to shut up. Handsome Pete was bitter Clint chose to talk to a crowd of strangers rather than to acknowledge his buddy.”

Governor Romney didn’t know what to think at the time Read the rest of this entry »
